APPLIED POWER ELECTS RICHARD SAVAGE OF MODINE MANUFACTURING TO BOARD
 MILWAUKEE, May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Applied Power Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: APWRA) today announced that Richard T. Savage, president and chief executive officer of Modine Manufacturing Company, has joined the board of directors of Applied Power. He replaces Robert M. Hoffer, who is retiring as a director, having reached the mandatory retirement age for Applied Power directors.
 Savage, 54, became president of Modine in 1989 and chief executive officer in 1991. Previously, he served the company as group vice president of the Original Equipment Division and earlier as operations manager of the corporation. Separately, he was with Blackstone Corp. as vice president of manufacturing. Savage received his B.S. degree in accounting from Ohio State University in 1961. He served in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. Other directorships include M&I Bank of Racine and Wise Manufacturing and Commerce.
 Hoffer, 70, has been a director of Applied Power since 1989. He is the retired chairman and chief executive officer of WICOR, Inc. and Wisconsin Gas Company.
 "The years Bob Hoffer has been on our board were particularly challenging times for our company. His counsel has been of great value in helping us assimilate major acquisitions and cope with the effects of the global recession on our businesses worldwide," Richard G. Sim, chairman and president, said.
 Applied Power is a world leader in industrial motion and position control applications and a pioneer in the marriage of hydraulic and vibration technologies with electronics. The company currently is comprised of six business segments: APITECH (digitally controlled systems to provide "smart" hydraulic motion), Barry Controls (vibration and shock isolation), Enerpac (hydraulic high force tools and production automation components), GB Electrical (products for electrical contractors and consumers), Power-Packer (truck cab and convertible top actuation systems), and Wright Line (media filing and storage systems). Non-U.S. activities account for 45 percent of overall revenues.
